Huscarl ~ Norse Tank

January 18, 2015 Leave a comment

HUSCARL“Not a whisper lads! In the fog all you’ve got to alert you are your ears – listen for the quiet splash of a hundred oars cutting through the water. When the prow breaks through the fog and slams into the sand you steady your arm and wait until you see the big brute with a shield – that’s the raider’s leader. You take him out and the rest are a savage horde. Huscarls they’re called, princes unto their own, they’re what bind the savage Norse tribes together. Aim true and take him down lads!” ~ Germund Osfrid, Sergeant of the Nordland Guard

Scion of Khorne – Khorne Tank

July 14, 2011 6 comments

“Some men grow weak at the sight of blood, others are unmoved by the sight of blood, and there still some men who are driven forward at the thought of bloodshed. But there are few men who thirst for blood. I do not mean a metaphorical thirst, but an actual daemonic thirst from within – the desire to consume the blood of other men. It is these men, the blood-crazed, that we must keep a vigilant eye for. Here in the northern reaches of human civilization the weak of mind are preyed upon by the Chaos gods, and the worst we can face are those preyed upon by Khorne. It is we, the men of Kislev, who are the first line of defense of humanity against the horrors of Khorne. And it is we, the men of Kislev, who shall be the first to die if we do not keep a vigilant eye on the icy mountains to the east. From there come the Scions of Khorne, men who scream like wild beasts and fight like daemons. Those are the blood-crazed men, and they will stop at nothing to have at your blood.” Colonel Bukarov of the Fortress of Zenilev

Grypon Lancer – Kislev Tank

July 13, 2011 5 comments

“In the dark days the savage hordes of Norsemen descended upon the fair plains of Kislev. Driven mad by the twisted Chaos gods, these men were laying waste to the country and moving through the Northern Wastes towards Erengrad. Frontiers outposts were overrun and their garrisons were massacred by the savages; Erengrad was facing a devastating tide. It was then that the famed Gryphon Legion rushed across the steppes to face the children of Chaos. As the thousands of savages descended upon the outskirts of Erengrad, the Gryphon Legion appeared on the eastern horizon. With dawn setting in, the sun light reflected off the Legion’s polished armor; it was as if a beacon of divine light had shone to give the city hope. Outnumbered at least ten to one, the Gryphon Legion charged forward to strike down the Chaos horde. Shining plate mail, wings bedecked with eagle feathers, leopard skins as cloaks. A sight to strike fear in the hearts of any. Against all odds the five hundred men of the Gryphon Legion charged forth to decimate the foes of Kislev and the carnage that ensued was deafening. This city’s existence is a testament to their valor.” Yuri Pavlov, Royal Historian of Kislev

Grail Knight – Bretonnian Tank

September 11, 2010 3 comments

“I trekked for days through those accursed mountains. In my dreams the Lady appeared to me and pointed me down that path, but I knew not why. The journey of the Questing Knight is often mysterious an shrouded in mist, but I surely felt as if I had misinterpreted the dream. I had fought in the wars against Araby, roamed the streets of Mousillon at night, slain a mighty orc warlord, and yet the Lady has not graced me with her blessing. It wasn’t until the sixth night in the mountains that I saw why I had been sent here –  a massive drunken centigor had been harassing a small hamlet. Surely this was my calling.” Godric of Carcassonne
